Got a Zoetis video with tips on controlling disease and boosting weight gain from nutritionist Dr. Martin Andersen. "Tips on controlling disease and boosting weight gain from nutritionist Martin Andersen, PhD, and senior nutritionist Blaine Corners, PhD, with Beef Strategic Technical Services at Zoetis.

 

With many stocker cattle operations, it’s common for the nearest working facility to be 10-plus miles away, so treating disease can be a challenge with those logistics. “Stocker operators have two choices,” said Martin Andersen, PhD, nutritionist with Beef Strategic Technical Services at Zoetis. “Either they can gather the cattle, separate them and treat the ones that are sick, or they can help prevent disease issues from ever occurring by using a feed additive and treating on pasture, without having to stress cattle by catching them.”

 

For improved disease control, feed efficiency and average daily gain, feed additives conveniently serve as a producer’s right-hand man — effectively treating groups of cattle miles away from working facilities and turning added pounds into profits. Tune into this video for more tips from Dr. Andersen and Blaine Corners, PhD, senior nutritionist with Beef Strategic Technical Services at Zoetis, on controlling disease and boosting weight gain at the stocker level.

 

Work with the nutritionist and veterinarian on your team to implement feed additives into your health program, and rely on CattleFeedAdditives.com for trusted resources to achieve your production goals."
